Film Synopsis

When her single mom runs off to California, Laudurée, a passionate environmentalist, clings to her rural home and a carbon sequestration experiment.

Laudurée (Perla Haney-Jardine) is a 13-year-old loner, passionate about nature and obsessed with ecological disaster. Greta (Amy Madigan), her grandmother, is a fiery nurse jaded by alcohol and disappointment. When Laudurée is abruptly abandoned by her dreamer single mom, she decides to take survival into her own hands, forcing her and Greta to rethink their futures and leap into the unknown.
